a few preliminary observations about what i think the ukraine crisis means for the united states foreign policy in general, and particularly on the perception of president obama's handling of foreign policy. i have basically two points i would making. the first one is that looking at the unfolding of events there, and particularly the reaction from the obama administration to what's happening in ukraine, it's possible that we may have reached a watershed in what i called post-iraq era. for years now we have as a country been traumatized by the aftermath of the iraq war. and president obama's entire foreign policy which was premised on the assumption that the first order of strategic business was to avoid conflict at all costs, and above all do not provoke one's opponents. the idea was that the days of great power rivalries were over. it was a new world. it was a world where diplomacy was largely divorced from balance of power. now, it's possible that the ukraine crisis is testing this assumption. obama's recent policy towards russia, if you look back and recover how he got started, reall

't think there's appetite in the united states, in red states or blue, to march u.s. troops into ukraine in order to fight a proxy war on russia's border. that being said, there certainly are tactics that we can take in concert with our european allies to economically isolate russia and make them pay a true kocost. frankly, from a military standpoint, i do think it's about time for some of our european friends to recognize that they might be next. this is now a pattern. if you upset russian integrity, if you cross vladimir putin, the next step may be invasion. that's happened now in georgia and in ukraine in a matter of about a decade. so, you know, whether it be the germans, who have always been sort of sitting back when it comes to issues of military intervention or others in the e.u., i'm not suggesting they marshall an army to march into crimea today but they have to be a little tougher on the russians as well. >> senator chris murphy of connecticut on the phone with us tonight. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> up next, remember the scramble to fix >> we have people wo
